Two years since a management buyout of the independent i-gaming standards, testing and certification company eCOGRA, and the organization is still flourishing. What’s more, the latest news from eCOGRA indicate that it is expanding swiftly.
Namely, this week its Executive Director Tex Rees revealed that ten additional professional staff have been hired, mostly in the chartered accountancy, certified information systems auditing and software test engineering departments.
This has been done in order to expand the organization’s capacity to service a growing client base of tier one operators and software suppliers who use eCOGRA’s services for i-gaming testing, monitoring and preparatory certification work in numerous regulated markets.
According to Rees, the company has also invested a lot in new audit software and programs, internal control systems and testing laboratory infrastructure in order to be able to facilitate effective management of the growing business.
"Our substantial investment in technology and human resources will favourably enhance our ability to meet clients’ needs and the licensing jurisdictions’ stringent criteria for accredited testing facilities,” Rees said, adding:
“Based on unsolicited feedback, we are confident that our clients are more than satisfied with our testing and certification services, particularly in regulated markets such as Spain, Denmark and Italy.
"However, the foreseeable introduction of diverse regulations and requirements by national licensing jurisdictions will continue to provide unique challenges for both licensees and testing houses, an industry dynamic for which eCOGRA is suitably positioned to excel.”
